A main product can be paired with 5 add-on items at most. It means when you visit the product page, it shows up 5 add-on items. And the sorting is not according to the sequence of add-on product uploaded/created time and date, it depends on pairing with a main product in order of priority.

e.g.
Created the add-on items A>B>C
and the main product 1 paired with C first, then paired with A, the last one is B.
When you scroll the page of product 1, it display the ordering C>A>B from above to below.
